Few things are as comforting on blustery winter days as a warm bowl of soup. Root vegetables like potatoes and carrots are low FODMAP, and help satisfy the carb craving that low temperatures bring on, while also being fantastic sources of nutrients like potassium, phosphorus, vitamin A, and B vitamins!
This rich, gluten-free soup includes unsweetened almond milk to avoid the lactose in cow’s milk, and also grated cheddar cheese, which is actually low FODMAP up to 1.5 ounces per serving! Because this recipe is for 4 people and includes 1 cup of grated cheddar ( approximately 4 ounces), it’s well within that limit, while still adding the earthy umami flavor and creaminess of the cheese.
We suggest blending the soup before serving, for a smooth, silky finish, but if you prefer a more rustic, slightly chunkier soup, you can blend only half… that would be great as well!
